Paint Strokes

I had Monday off for Columbus day this weekend so I spent some time down at Aarons. Saturday morning/afternoon was the Army game and tailgate then I left early and drove down to New Jersey.
It was one of the worst trips of my life. I had THE WORST cramps I have ever experienced in my life. Ugh it was bad. It put me in such a bad mood, then on top of that for some reason I didn't pack anything to deal with cramps(if you catch my drift) so I had to go shopping. That was another debacle and I cried a little. It was just stressful and stupid. Ugh, awful. Then when I finally did get to Aarons I was miserable and he had his friend over, and they were doing an amazing job painting and I just couldn't muster up any enthusiasm except for the fact that I was seeing him. It was a bad day for Bridget! BUT! It did get better. Once I started feeling better, and was able to relax.
I have some pictures of his newly painted place. It looks fabulous.
The first time I went to his apartment I was taken aback because it did not reflect him at all. It was cold, empty, stark, unlivable(I mean it just seems like no one lived there) it just lacked life and love to be honest. This may sound harsh, or weird, but I don't know how anybody could have really felt at home with it like that. I know I couldn't have for an extended period of time. It was not very cozy or comfortable! And if you knew Aaron you'd realize that that is just not him. Or at least in my eyes. He's one of the most lovable people I know, so to see what I saw at first I was very surprised!!
But my oh my what a transformation. He did a great job picking out colors and making our ideas happen. He's a mastermind.
Here is the living room:

This is a picture of the bedroom. I picked out the color. He thought it was too dark at first, but I think he's really starting to love it. I LOVE it. I think it's fantastic. Warm, cozy, comfy, sexy, which are some words I'd use to describe my boy. :) He also was so nice to buy a new comforter for the bed. Oh man I did not want to get out of bed this morning! It was so comfy. I don't know, I really love that room now. Especially when we are in there together.

I love this boy.
